Working with resistant clients in career counseling by Norman C Gysbers( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Digest identifies and describes ways that clients' resistance may be exhibited during career counseling. It states that whenever clients are involved in change, client resistance should be expected. Some examples of types of resistance that may be exhibited include fear of counseling, fear of taking responsibility, making excuses, and overt physical behavior. It suggests several counseling strategies that may be helpful with these encounters including working alliances, joining, metaphors, and labeling and reframing. The paper states that these examples point out the significance of the active role counselors need to take in dealing directly with client resistance since, no matter the cause, client resistance impedes progress.

Comprehensive guidance programs that work-II by Norman C Gysbers( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprehensive guidance programs are gaining increased attention. Aspects of these guidance programs were outlined in 1994 in a well-received book, which now has been updated. This new edition offers both the innovative concept (comprehensive school guidance program model) and the practical application of the concept as it has been applied in 14 different school and state settings. The practical reports were written by professionals who have extensive experience with the program. Although the chapters are specific to the school, district or state plan of each contributor, all of the programs are grounded in the concepts refined by the book's editors. The first chapter provides an overview of the comprehensive guidance model, a model which had its genesis in the early 1970s. The states represented by these program models include Missouri, Utah, Texas, South Carolina, Nebraska, Arizona, Maryland, and New Hampshire. This new edition also includes some refined theoretical points, including new material on leadership and supervision of school counselors in comprehensive guidance programs and the evaluation of comprehensive guidance programs. The last chapter offers key points, such as the importance of a team approach, for those who wish to develop and implement a comprehensive guidance program. (RJM)

Leading and managing comprehensive school guidance programs by Norman C Gysbers( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fundamental beliefs and organizational structure represent an important part of comprehensive guidance programs serving students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. These programs help students gain competencies in the areas of personal/social, educational, and career development at all educational levels. Comprehensive programs guarantee that all students have access to school counselors and school counselors have access to all students. A comprehensive school guidance program is implemented through a team approach that uses all staff members in roles appropriate to their training and competence. District and building guidance program leaders fulfill four roles: administrator, supervisor, manager, and professional leader. When guidance is conceptualized and implemented as a program in schools, with the appropriate leadership, it places guidance conceptually and structurally in the center of education and education reform.

Evaluating school guidance programs by Norman C Gysbers( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To achieve accountability, evaluation is needed concerning: the nature, structure, organization, and implementation of school district/building guidance programs; the school counselors and other personnel who are implementing the programs; and the impact the programs are having on students, the schools where they learn, and the communities in which they live. In order to fully evaluate comprehensive school guidance programs, three forms of evaluation are required. First, the program must be reviewed using program standards, evidence, and documentation to establish that there is a written guidance program in a school district and/or building and that the written program is the implemented program. Second, guidance program personnel need job descriptions derived directly from the program so that evaluation forms can be developed and used for formative and summative personnel evaluation. Third, results evaluation that focuses on the impact of the guidance and counseling activities in the guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support components of a comprehensive guidance program is mandatory.

A visit to a comprehensive guidance program that works : Northside Independent School District, San Antonio, Texas( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many educators across the country have expressed interest in visiting a school district where there is an effective and comprehensive guidance program in place. One such program is presented here. The program is detailed in four sections, each with a chapter devoted to the district level, the elementary school level, the middle school level, and the high school level. In the systematic approach to the comprehensive guidance program, the school district provides the context within which the schools operate. The district expresses commitment and provides leadership to the program. But the program functions at the three educational levels and while all schools follow the same counseling program framework, each is different due to student ages, curriculum, and other factors. The elementary school component is the foundation of the structure. The chapter describing this program explains how to begin, the guidance curriculum, individual planning, and other factors. In the middle school program the emphasis is on bridging the elementary and high schools, whereas in the high school, the goal is to help students leave school having developed the responsibility of continuing their own personal, social, emotional, educational, and career development. Program evaluation is highly important and a full chapter is devoted to issues surrounding guidance program evaluation. (Rjm)
